The Ohio College Republican Federation has apologized for a fundraising email referring to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., as a "domestic terrorist".
Ocasio-Cortez immediately came to Omar's defense and accused the former Navy SEAL of not properly supporting 9/11 victims and first responders.
"You refuse to cosponsor the 9/11 Victim's Compensation Fund, yet have the audacity to drum resentment towards Ilhan w/completely out-of-context quotes", said Ocasio-Cortez.
"So here you go, you guys are breaking news".
"I will support whoever the Democratic nominee is", the freshman Democrat from NY prefaced when asked her opinion of a Biden candidacy during an interview with Yahoo News' "Skullduggery" podcast on Sunday.
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now facing backlash for calling on combat veteran Rep. Dan Crenshaw to "do something" about terrorism.
Ocasio-Cortez drew an implied analogy to USA policy on the southern border, where Trump last week implied that the policy of detaining immigrants and removing their children was an effective deterrent to illegal immigration.
But Barr in the Friday letter said Ocasio-Cortez's remarks about Crenshaw go too far.
By promoting ambitious forward-thinking policies including the Green New Deal, a bill to address human-induced climate-change, Ocasio-Cortez has found herself the preferred target of white conservative ire in the USA - including becoming the recipient of multiple death threats, according to reports.
The 29-year-old congresswoman stunned the political world when she defeated 10-term incumbent Rep. Joe Crowley in the Democratic primary last year, becoming the youngest woman ever to serve in Congress.
Not a day went by when she wasn't spoken about on Fox. She also backed off her support for a two-state solution within three days of calling herself "a proponent of a two-state solution".
